I have a problem with audio over HDMI.
I make fresh preinstall of Windows 10, update with drivers from Lenovo Support and was without result.
I try without update of drivers, try with Windows 8 and again - in Sound->Playback devices you can't see HDMI.
In the same time, the picture is fine, but just no audio. I try with drivers from Intel support site, but nothing too.
At the final, to be sure that HDMI device like hardware is not defected or broken - I try with Linux Ubuntu Live from USB flash and it's working fine! So the problem is not physical. It's a software problem between Lenovo, Intel and Windows drivers and OS.
Now is with fresh installed Windows 10 again and updated drivers from Lenovo Support site again and again is without HDMI audio.

Am I only one with this problem?
What's happen with Lenovo Support?
I must install both Windows and Linux.....and never again buy a Lenovo.

Lenovo doesn't give a Seems like we have to use double-boot and switch to Ubuntu everytime we need HDMI sound which is ridiculuous, some apps doesn't support Linux.

Yes, this is ridiculuous! But I think about something different.
Why Lenovo made Community, if they not support the people with problems?
They are not so different from other supliers and manifactures.
It's always about the money and just to buy their product and after that who cares what type of problem you have?
They pretend to be blind for problems like this.
Anyway, it's their way and their choice - many companys before them,
now are bullsh*t companys and nobody buy nothing from them.
